I saw 1985's The Black Cauldron when I was a kid and I remember at the time finding it to be a surprisingly disturbing film. Watching it as an adult a few nights ago, I can say it’s still disturbing, for the same reasons, but now I don’t think they were quite intentional. It’s a film in which visual beauty coexists…
Hello all! Welcome to WednesdayBookClub and in a stunning turn of events, I’m writing this Tuesday night. I might not be up in time to post but honestly, I kinda hope I’m not up in time to post so I’m doing it now. Let’s get started.
Lots of finales on the way (especially at the end of this month and the beginning of April), but in the meantime we get two more time travel shows and the premiere of a certain Marvel Netflix series. Check below to find out when everything is happening.
Um, I mean, vicariously? Because we ate it all. Really, it wasn’t all that big. But it was sweet and tasty.
I’ve changed the timeline again. Iris is still gonna die. Or maybe Malfoy is going to die because he is going to sacrifice for Snow. Anyway... Have your reactions and monkey business and stuff now that we have Tres Flashes.
But on the other hand, being disintegrated to the subatmoic level and then turned into energy may have some advantages in arguing for men like Kirk... (Also Riker.. ;) )
We’re back on Advanced Muggle Studies! This week, we discuss: more monomyth; disapproving McGonagall; positive social policing; What the Fuck, Hogwarts?! After Hours edition; sexy My Little Ponies; virgins LOVE THEM SOME UNICORNS; magical boobs; poorly conceived Jesus metaphors; stop killing animals for their phallus…
On Friday’s episode, we get the Grimm version of a classic monster story, while Eve deals with death grip stuff and Renard tries to learn more about Diana’s drawings. Spoilers after the break.
Wooops. React. See you in a bit.
“Through Imperial Eyes”, last night’s new episode of Star Wars Rebels, was a massive improvement over the previous week’s episode and one of the best written episodes of the series. Although I was able to predict some of the things that happened in the episode, writers Nicole Duboc and Henry Gilroy have put together a…
Let’s take a break from the Oscar madness (congratulating the winner,
La La Land Moonlight, of course) to take a look at this trailer for an urban fantasy cop movie from the director of the Academy Award-winning film Suicide Squad.
#FakeNews #DishonestWarrenBeatty. Sad! (What? The way I understood it, we all may pick our own alternate winner...)
Hello, and welcome back to The Walking Dead Live Thread. I know that most of you will be watching the Oscars, but I’m posting this just in case anyone’s going to watch TWD instead. Let’s give an honorary Oscar to Winslow for best wardrobe.
In this era of post-truth and “alternative facts,” I’m never sure if people actually know the truth or are just obfuscating things in order to make people believe their lies. But, just in case, I’m going to explain something that people should really know about the Democrats and the Republicans and their history.
But then again, it ain’t easy being green. When was the last time a green person won an Oscar? And he was perfect in the part - excellent chemistry with Emma Stone. I can’t imagine anyone else in the role...
This past week I’ve been re-watching the 1977 Fourth Doctor Doctor Who serial Robots of Death, widely considered one of the best Fourth Doctor serials with good reason. I love how quickly and naturally it accomplishes its world building while the Doctor (Tom Baker) and his companion Leela (Louise Jameson) are trapped…
So today we see the SGC conduct a marriage ceremony and also deal with The Trust being even more evil.
Of course you haven’t. There are ten of them and the ones that really want it all come out at the same time... (I’ve seen two, and I assume Arrival won’t get it, as much as I wish). So maybe sum it up and watch Oscarbait - the movie. The film that has it all in one go. Or just watch the trailer. Most trailers give…
